A huge store with a prominent ’Craft Beer’ sign. Like most big box stores, it is hard to be comfortable here. The sign and ratings had my expectations on the high side and I was let down. Main 6 packs, not a huge selection of singles. Prices were good, but I couldn’t find much I would call interesting. Worth a stop if you are in the neighbourhood, but not a specific trip.

(Visited 08/2011): Champane’s is located on the north side of Warren on Chicago Rd. There is a large lot out front.
The interior is large and open, and the beer selection is mainly in the rear of the store but there is a cooler full of singles at the front of the store.
The main selection (several hundred) is in aisles and there is a solid array of craft brewers represented both from Michigan and from across the country. Founders, Shorts, North Peak, Arbor, Dark Horse etc along with Anchor, Great Lakes, Rogue and many more. Imports from Oud Beersel, Mikkeller and the like.
Service at Champane’s is pretty good. Everyone was friendly and I was asked if I needed help finding anything.
Overall this is a very good spot to hit in the Royal Oak/Warren area.

Nice big selection of American and import craft beers. Disappointingly for this traveler, there wasn’t a lot offered in the way of singles, or I’d have loaded up with a lot more of the nice Michigan offerings. They happened to be hosting some kind of beer tasting the night I popped in, but I didn’t partake.

Surprisingly, I did not stop by Champane’s the last time I was at Kuhnhenn, but given that it’s 1 km away and one of the best rated store in Michigan, I would not repeat that feat again. The place is quite huge, with aisles like a Costco filled with wine and spirits and beers at the very end. The beer section fills a solid 2 aisles and a half and contained a very good range of bombers as well as several six-packs from the usual Michigan suspects. No Kuhnhenn though. Above 6 beers from each of the likes of Founders, Bells, Short’s, Great akes. They had quite a few Voodoo. Few rarities though and some missing birds were a bit surprising. No Expedition? No Breakfast Stout? On the other hand, the prices are among the cheapest I’ve seen in North America over the last couple of years. Certainly a worthy stop if you’re in the area, but I don’t find it particularly impressive and although we were there at the very last minute, I could find no employee to let me know if breaking six-packs was accepted. Reading other reviews though, it seems that the manager accepts it.

My first and certainly not last visit. On the way from Canada, new Sarnia highway 402, and on the way to Kuhnhenn. A large store, dedicated to wine, however increasingly craft beer is making a show, and the equivalent of 8 rows of beer. Michigan is the main event, and Michael, the manager, will break up any 6-pak. He did this in droves, perhaps with my suggestion, for the Short’s 6-seasonal. Prices were decent, and it is easy to shop here. Several harder to finds, like Arbor sours and some Mikkeller that did not come New York State way.

A massive beer store with a large section of glass and household wares up front, a large selection of candy and jerky up front as well. The beer section although large doesn’t really have a massive selection. There was a decent selection of MI state stuff (Shorts, Jolly Pumpkin, Great Lakes, Founders) and these are allowed to be mixed as a set of singles (some of which are already broken up in the coolers up front). The prices were pretty cheap but something about it left me underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong - it’s a solid store with an excellent selection but for a place with ratings like this has - I was expecting something more.

Went to this store after a night at a local brewpub. Easy parking next to building. Large building with well organized shelfs with wine, liquor on the right and three large shelfs of beers on the back left. Good selection of standard micros in bombers and six packs and good selection of Michigan beers. Found two cases of new beer for me. Peanuts, wine and hard liquor store at good prices. Freindly package store service. Nice location and I will return when in the area.

In town visiting, this place was the highest rated so I thought I’d give it a try to pick up some nice Michigan locals. This place is huge, wharehouse like, interesting atmosphere with stuff animals, I liked the lions...The beer section is decent about 6 rows of beer. Most of the rows are consumed with 6 packs, wish there was some more individual bottles. The only real indivduals were most of the Belgians. Decent selection of foreign and domestic. Its mostly chalk craft beers that you would find at any decent beer bar. So disappointing I didn’t see anything I couldn’t get at 50 other places. Contrary to another reviewer you cannot break up 6 packs here. The biggest disappointment by far was the secletion of Michigan beers. No bells or Founders I couldn’t get anywhere. They had a few short’s beers, but again nothing past the main staples. Very disappoinging. Prices were decent about the only good thing I’d say...With so many awesome brew pubs around no need to go to this place.

A large warehouse style store with a great selection of beers. Staff is friendly and quite helpful. They have one of the better selections in Michigan at more than fair prices. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Stopped here on my way to kuhnhenn (just down the street). It was my first experience inside an american beer store and the selection lived up to the hype. 3 shelving units (1 european, mainly belgian and 2 american) full of great beer. MI breweries were well represented and prices were decent. I didn’t get any service but there was a wine tasting going on so all their floor employees must have been busy with that.
